Frank M. Egas

June 11, 1947September 29, 2011

Frank M. Egas, age 64, beloved father of Erin Egas, RN (fiancée Marty Kuznicki), cherished brother of Peter (Sandy) and Joe (Brenda) Egas; fond uncle of Benjamin, Adam (Annemarie), David, Eric & John Egas; dear cousin of many.

Frank immigrated from Ecuador to the United States when he was 9 years old. He earned his naturalization by volunteering to serve in the US Army in the Vietnam War. Frank achieved Secret Clearance, which is the highest military clearance a non-citizen can earn, and one step below Top Secret.

During the war Frank served in Vietnam and Cambodia. When he returned from overseas, Frank was debriefed by the pentagon. Frank’s dedication to his country was evidenced by the secrets he kept, even from those he loved, taking them to his grave, as he honored the oaths he made.

Frank's life will be celebrated at a Memorial Visitation Thursday, October 6, 2011 from 9am until time of Memorial Service at 12pm at Blake-Lamb Funeral Home, 5015 Lincoln Ave., Lisle, IL (on Rt. 53, ½ mile south of Ogden Ave. / Rt. 34).

For information, you may call the funeral home at 630-964-9392.

I remember my cousin Frank when I was a teenager and he had just returned from Vietnam. He wore his uniform proudly and served his new country honorably. As a soldier, I too am proud to have served this country and I am sad that I was not able to attend the funeral and pay my personal respects to this proud American. Erin our family sends our condolences and know that we are sorry for the loss of your father.

I never had the honour of meeting your daddy, Erin, but from the things you've said about him, his beautiful character and gentle ways live on in you. Love and light to you and yours, dolly. ~smoochies~

I never met Frank.
But from the moment I met his daughter, I know I appreciated him.

It's sad that his journey amongst us ended in the way it did, but such is the mystery of life. Where he travels now we don't know, but may the Lord bless him and keep him, however and wherever it may be.
And we'll keep an eye on the sprog for you, fellah.

Here's to you, and all you left behind.
